Advantages: Clean trains, friendly staff
Disadvantages: Food is a little pricey but trains are
East Coast trains operates on you guessed it the East-coast mainline. I usually board at Newcastle when I am commuting to Lancashire and change at York.
The trains are always clean and tidy looking but this could be because I usually get the 4.30am from Newcastle to London kings cross. The train operates a kitchen for all your onboard catering needs (the food is decent enough but expect to pay OTT because your on a train).
The trains come with very comfortable seats and tables, power sockets so you can charge your mobile phone or laptop. Onboard WIFI is also provided which works easy enough on my laptop without the need for any reconfiguration (doesn't work on my iPod touch though).
The staff are always extermely polite and will endavour to help you should you need it. You are informed of safety procedures before leaving over the PA and this is sign posted all over the entrances of the train.
The toilets provided are always clean when I get on but obviously I am on the first train of the morning so they should be anyways.
My Journey usually lasts about an hour and I can safely say that the onlytime you think your moving is when the train is breaking to stop at a station the journey is that smooth.
I am really impressed with the overall service provided by East Coast i'd give them 5 out of 5
